Re: OPW; Where does the 500$ for each GSoC goes?

IF the Gnome Foundation spends money for GUADEC attendance sponsorship

GUADEC, Gnome Asia, Gnome Summit, or another local event.

So this seems like a reasonable argument: the cost of an international
plane ticket is significant, and I'm really uncertain if that's the best
way to spend our funds. On the other hand, most of the most active GNOME
contributors are from Europe or North America, and I wonder if flying a
student out to a regional conference with fewer core developers would
really be as good of an experience for that student.

Consider also that we're only sponsoring a limited portion of the plane
ticket. If the cost to the Foundation is $500 for partial sponsorship to
GUADEC (that's my guess, I have no clue how much it really is!), and
$400 for a regional conference, then GUADEC seems like a better idea.
